  • Hippygoth, they share the same kernel, thats why SP2 says xp x64 and 2k3.

    crap someone already said it.

      Could you private message me the URL?

      The problem is that our requirements are different from his. We want the executable to be both secure and work... granted if it's easy to crack there isn't much benefit of it being there.

      • lol its funny how someone that does hacking and cracking as a hobby is able to out smart all the professionals.

        Just let us play for the time being with this exe since its a beta and then you guys can play create a new one secured for the full release or regular demo

It seems to be the same issue that is preventing customers with Windows XP 64 bit to play the game, so there is hope that there is going to be one fix to rule, err, address them all.
          Again, thanks. I understand that people are clearly upset about this but I hope I speak for most UT fans when I say that we are aware of the difference between beta demo and release. I'd rather have this issue during demo than after buying it retail.

          Fortunately I have some free drive space on my desktop and I'm installing 32-bit XP right now just to play the game. Switching OSs between UT3 and everything else is an inconvenience but I can live with it until a demo patch or actual release comes out.

          Keep us posted and perhaps make a sticky once there's a resolution -- I honestly didn't think that there would be this many XP64 users posting.

          • XP x64 is kinda free (legally). There are many users.

            • Ok, figured it out.
              For all those that wanted to call me a liar, heres proof.
              http://img504.imageshack.us/my.php?image=unrealkz0.jpg

              Now whats needed right now to make it work.
              Apparrently epic left the debug version running, thats why I could run it on my main pc with debug kernel installed.

              I did a clean x64 install and got the same error that everyone else did.
              the fix is to go to the ms site at:
              http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/devtoo...tall64bit.mspx

              download the file http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/s...4_6.7.05.1.exe

              And yes that works for intel as well.,
              Install it.
              run windbg you just installed.
              open file, open executeable
              Pick the unreal exe
              now keep hitting f5 until you get the ut3 graphic, then just wait
              Game should run

                I'll try this when I finish installing 32-bit. FYI -- that screenshot says SP1. I was having trouble with SP2 (64-bit).

                • yeah I just did a quick install
                  I didn't install service packs, .net or anything but just video drivers, sound, dx
                  I'll install sp2, but it should still work either way.

                    Well if you have SP2 available could you install it and retry just so we can rule that out? Not a huge deal -- like I said, I can try it on SP2 in about 20 or 30 minutes when this other install finishes. Thanks for all your help with this, too.

                      Well it appears to me, the x64 and Server 2003 issues took Epic by surprise, I don't know if that's because it was never compiled for them, or it was simply never tested on those platforms before release.

                      I'll be brutally honest and say if I knew where to get the hack, I'd be using it. My gaming buddies are up and about fragging each other right now.

                      I do expect Epic to get this fixed pretty quick, they've normally been good at getting these annoying bugs ironed out. The beta demo has done it's job. Epic are now aware of these issues and are working on fixing them. I don't think it's what they initially expected as a result, but better now than in the gold version.

                        lol same here, i would have downloaded the hack ages ago. All i want to do is play the game right now and get this over with with the modified error code. I would have a better experience if this hack were available than to leave a bad taste in my mouth with this error.

                        • The good news is that it is an easy fix.
                          You can wait for them or follow the steps I gave above.

                            Just testing that now, I'll let you know how I get on.

                            Thanks for the info!

                            • That AMD debugger doesn't install on Server 2003 (32bit)

                              Instead download the 32 bit debugger: http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/s...6_6.7.05.1.exe

                              Works here. THanks Arson!
